Arts grants applications open to Island artists

Prince Edward Island professional artists are invited to apply for funding during the fall 2021 round of arts grants to support their growth and creativity.

Applications for funding can be submitted online at: Apply for PEI Arts Grants Funding On-line for three types of grants: creation, dissemination, and professional development. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, October 13 at 4 p.m. 

Successful applicants are selected by a six-member jury of their arts community peers, which is modeled on the practice followed by the Canada Council of the Arts. There is $50,000 available in this round of funding, with another round of $50,000 in the spring.

“Government is always proud to launch another round of funding through the Arts Grants program. The art created through this program is truly remarkable. We certainly recognize the positive impact these grants have on Island artists and the benefits to our cultural sector, and we’re very happy to support that.”

- Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Matthew MacKay

Since the fall of 2016, the Province has supported 154 projects by Island artists with grants totaling $575,000.
